6 Glitter Makeup Products That Will Sparkle Bright Into the Holiday Season
Nothing packs a punch like glitter—and this season, holographic pigments took on a whole new life on the runways. From the bodies saturated in shimmer at Gypsy Sport to the swathed gazes at Marc Jacobs, Fendi, and Valentino, prismatic shine was everywhere. Call it the Euphoria effect or attribute it to our culture’s continued desire for fantasy and escapism, but there’s no shortage of inspirational ways to wear glitter. And with the holiday season fast approaching, why not recalibrate your makeup bag accordingly?
While Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty collection as a whole tends to beg for a selfie, her new limited-edition Liquid Diamond Bomb Glitter Highlighter, which comes in a roll-on format that slips easily into a clutch, can transform a complexion to intergalactic effect. To kick twinkle into overdrive at eye-level, smudge the latest vivid hues of Stila’s pearlescent Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow, or one of the shimmery jewel-toned shades from Pat McGrath’s Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette in Midnight Sun, onto the lids. Or for some retro-inspired sparkle, there’s the Marc Jacobs See-Quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow, which was used in blackened plum Pop Rox and rosy copper Star Dust during its Spring 2020 beauty extravaganza. And with sustainability top of mind, look to the offerings from biodegradable glitter brand BioGlitz, which were used backstage at Gypsy Sport on the face and body to make an eco-conscious statement.
For just a touch of iridescence, try a swipe of NARS Multi-Use Gloss in white-gold Star Babe over the lips, or tap Milk’s Holographic Highlighting Powder on the tops of the cheekbones. No matter how you choose to lay on the megawatt shine in the coming months, your Instagram feed will thank you.
